Hogmanay (New Year) Blessings

I got this in an e-mail and thought I'd pass it on to all of you, too...LOL!

2009 Friendship Contract

After serious and careful consideration, your 2009 contract of friendship has been renewed. It was a very hard decision to make, so try not to screw it up!!!

Modern Hogmanay Blessing
May peace break into your house and thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and laughter assault your lips!
May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.
May your clothes smell of success and the problems you had forget your home address.
May 2009 be the very best year of your life!!!!
And my response...to be said on the evening of 31 December at midnight (or earlier if you just can't stay up). ;-)

Auld Celtic Hogmanay Blessing
May the Gods grant their blessing upon this dwelling,
And upon each stone and beam and stave of it.
And upon all the food and drink,
And the furnishings and clothing.
May the family and the animals
Enjoy the fullness of health
And prosperity, for now and always.
